Grants Picnic Ground

Situated in the Sherbrooke Forest, Grants Picnic Ground is one of the top attractions of the Dandenong Ranges, famous for its bird feeding. If you love to walk and appreciate nature, there are walking tracks that start from the picnic ground which take you through the native plants and wildlife.

To access the bird feeding area, buy a token from Grants on Sherbrooke and they will give you seed to feed the wild native birds. This is a unique and one-off feeding area as there is nowhere else in the Dandenong Ranges that hand feeding native birds is allowed.

Visitors get to experience the spectacular Cockatoos, Rosellas and Parrots as they fly in to say 'Hello'.
